Lambaril was founded on 22 Lunar 609 by Herfarel refugees. They were driven from their homes by incessant bullywug attacks coming out of Orondir.
Lambaril is built on high ground near the eastern banks of the mighty Dargirth river. This high ground is not enough to prevent flooding in the Ice Cap Melt, so places in threatened areas are constructed on columns and have other flooding measures. There are canals to divert water and the city's mages use spells like wall of force during times of high water danger.
